Governors will not pay community policemen, Akeredolu replies DIG


Governor Rotimi Akeredolu who had on August 11 2020, inaugurated the Operation Amotekun in Akure, the Ondo state capital has said that the state’s Security Network Agency which is also known as Amotekun will not be subsumed under the community policing arrangement of the Nigeria Police Force.

He insisted that Governors will not pay the community policemen although, states had clamoured before now for independent police systems to tackle peculiar security challenges in their localities.

Due to the recent approval of N13.3bn by the Federal Government for the take-off of the community policing initiative across the country, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Research and Planning, Adeleye Oyebade, said on Tuesday that all other security arrangements in the country would fall under the community policing set-up of the Federal Government.
